Malcolm X: A Life of Reinvention
This is the long awaited biography by Manning Marable, which was over fifteen years in the making, has finally been released to the public. Featuring never before known information about the legendary activist that was acquired by the author’s interviews with Malcolm X’s security team and inner circle, over 4,000 pages of information secured from the US Government due to the Freedom of Information Act, diaries and letters. This biography is easily the most researched book on Malcolm X bar none and sheds new insight on his assasination, relationship with his wife, meetings with organizations as diverse as the Klu Klux Klan to the PLO, and other factors that led to his departure from the Nation of Islam.
It’s unfortunate that Manning Marable died shortly before the release of his opus and seminal work. However, I’m grateful that the book was finished during his lifetime for us all to read and learn from.
